^^^  I do.  To me that argument is like telling all the reasons why you can't go back to school.  The environment is hostile, don't have funding, work schedule won't allow etc.  Yes it will be hard.  Yes it will be harder for you as a POC than a white person.  Yes you may have to stay down until you come up but the end result will make things better for YOU.  

Voting may be rigged six ways from Sunday, but until we're all doing it, how do we prove it?  We have no voice in politics but until we have candidates and high percentages of black voters, what do we say then?  

Our biggest issue in my opinion is our hopelessness.  We come off as apathetic because we no longer believe things are ever going to be any better for us.  We take what little we can get individually rather than demanding collectively.  Just my opinion though.
